“Daniela Vega, the first trans actress to lead a major Oscar-nominated film is a force of nature: tender, furious, indomitable.” – Entertainment WeeklyAfter the sudden death of her partner, Orlando, Marina (Daniela Vega), a young trans woman, is treated with suspicion by Orlando’s family, doctors, and the local police. Orlando’s ex-wife forbids Marina from attending the funeral, and Orlando’s son threatens to throw Marina out of the flat she shared with Orlando. Orlando’s family can only see Marina’s gender identity as an aberration, a perversion. Marina simply wants to grieve the man she loved and who loved her back. Doing so will require all of Marina’s strength and resilience.Watch the trailer: https://youtu.be/IKsSyp4m_6oRSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and please note SEATTLE GAY SCENE as your affiliation when responding.Space is limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
